Re: Effect of the UK General Election on the exchange rate.

Yes, Of course there have been mutterings about pensioners having ( but not all of course ) it easy compared to the younger generation. But this was really May shooting herself in the foot. The worst of all possible outcomes. We live in interesting times ! The £ is going nowhere for now. anyroads

Re: Effect of the UK General Election on the exchange rate.

And getting back to the exchange rate...

I expect a small uplift when the Conservatives are returned with a working majority. Brexit will keep a lid on it for a while alas.

Re: Effect of the UK General Election on the exchange rate.

No matter what government is in power.

There is little they can do if some nutters decide ( perhaps being "inspired" by all the attention the others got from the BBC ), they are going to hire a van, get some knives and create havoc. Sad but true.

Re: Sliced Ham (not Jamon)

Took out this month a kilo of "bacon" from Lidl which cost all of £3.39.

We invited some friends in for dinner one night when we cooked the bacon. They are long term residents and said they are unable to buy anything of that quality at any price !

Re: From Mexican island to alpujarras, any advice appreciated

I was in a bar last week, catering more or less for Real Madrid fans, second last game of the season which they won to go 3 points clear ( they have won the title tonight ). The place was packed. A few minutes after the final whistle, it was almost empty. A lot of the "fans" were either no...

Re: dorado

They are the only two fish I ever bother with in Spain ( Marcadona are good for both ).

I am not gone on some of the uglier looking ones. My loss I suppose.

Re: Malaga vs Barca tickets

Even as a season ticket holder, I will struggle to get a Cup Final Ticket.

A/senal will get 20,000 tickets, something like 44,000 season ticket holders, so it is basically a lottery.

If this ever did happen,

It is not so much, whom to vote for, but what to vote for.
